Hope Resources (Food Pantry)

Churches in North Berrien County worked diligently to make Hope Resources a reality.  Obtaining a building devoted to only the work of Hope Resources is the continuing focus.  Until the building can be obtained, Hope Resources will continue to operate out of the Coloma United Methodist Church.  We look forward to advances on that front every day, through prayer, phone calls, and meetings.  All prayers are very welcome and encouraged!

Hope Resources

Hope Resources is currently located in the Coloma United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 670, 144 S. Church Street, 

Coloma, Michigan.  It is supported by area churches, many local organizations, the United States Post Office in Coloma, Feeding America, and many individuals too!

Who?   Hope Resources assists only residents of the school districts of Coloma, Watervliet, or Riverside/Hagar #6.  Those persons asking for assistance may return once each calendar month.  The Hope Resources pantry is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 9am to noon.  Food can only be given during those hours - even if the church is open for other reasons - because Hope Resource staff need to be present to give access to food and documentation.

What documentation?  If you are requesting food, please have your pictured ID with you each time you return.  Documentation is necessary for the head of your household:

  • Pictured ID
  • New address proof such as first class mail addressed to you, a utility bill, lease, or any other document with your name and address.

Snow?  If the Coloma Schools have a snow day and school is cancelled, then Food Resources is closed as well.  Rather than make the trip and find us closed, you are welcome to call the church office at 468-6062.

Funerals:  Occasionally, we host a funeral here in our church sanctuary.  There will be a sign at the north entrance saying that Hope Resources is closed.  There is no way of knowing this ahead of time.  Please do not enter the glass doors, expecting someone to give you food, as there will be no Food Resource staff to serve you.  We hope you understand and will respect those in attendance at the funeral.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Hope Resources through the church phone 468-6062, during the pantry operating hours - Wednesday through Thursday, 9am to noon.


     a compassionate people, seeking, serving, sharing, discovering the love of Jesus, together.
